How Do I Get Involved in Church, Part 2

This is part 2 of a three-part post on getting involved in church. It is based on our recent study of Romans 12. Be sure to read part 1 from last month’s post. In this day and age of church-attenders looking for flash, pizzaz, and excitement, “getting involved” in church the way in which we are advocating may seem a bit uninspiring.
